Rock City is one of the biggest names on the UK club and live music circuit and has been since it first opened its doors three decades ago. On Thursday 11 December 1980, the day Rock City first opened its doors, Abba were at number one with Super Trooper, John Lennon had just been shot, The Empire Strikes Back was still on its initial cinema run, Margaret Thatcher was just a year into her reign as Prime Minister and a packet of 20 cigarettes cost less than 40p. - See more at:
